Melrose Ave[edit] Olivia Newton-John's Koala Blue certainly attracted attention to Melrose Avenue, but its transformation was already under way by the time she opened it up. There were a few boutiques (all long gone) like Flip and Poseur that predated Koala Blue, as did the record store Vinyl Fetish (still in existence under the name Melrose Music). I can't agree with the Melrose Avenue section and summary, either. If I'm correct, Poseur was the big botique that made Melrose, along with long standing businesses such as Helen Bed's Retail Slut, Vinyl Fetish, Golden Apple Comics and the Groundling's Comedy Theatre. Koala Blue, to my knowledge, was a minor press release media opening, that did little to change the district, although I'm sure it wasn't bad for business. If I can find a good source, I'll re-write the section. Glowimperial 01:37, 14 January 2006 (UTC) I just read that section after referring someone to this article at the reference desk, and it is completely inaccurate both historically and conceptually, both about the freeway, and confusing cause and effect. It's on my list of things to fix. MCB 22:22, 9 March 2006 (UTC)


Fairfax Funk Factory[edit] The Fairfax District was referenced in the name of an apocryphal musical group, the Fairfax Funk Factory. Fairfax Funk Factory was mentioned on Rhino Records' 1979 "Rhino Brothers' Circus Royale" record album. Fairfax Funk Factory may have either been an early incarnation or a fictious history of either the "Yiddish People" or "Gefilte Joe & Fish" (both of which are real musical groups that played parodies of popular songs with humourous lyrics about Jews and Jewishness). 71.168.133.195 (talk) 12:05, 6 March 2008 (UTC)


Beverly Hills Adjacent is not part of Fairfax District.[edit] The Beverly Hills Adjacent area is definately not part of the Fairfax district. The person who wrote this article seems to think it is however, saying that the Beverly Center and Cedar Sinai, both of which are in BH adjacent. I'm not sure if the Beverly Grove area (the area between La Cienega and Crescent Heights) is part of Fairfax or not but BH adjacent is not. It has a different area code, realty, and no one on the mapping la article seems to think so. http://projects.latimes.com/mapping-la/neighborhoods/neighborhood/fairfax/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gabrielboros100 (talk • contribs) 02:44, 29 May 2009 (UTC)


Requested move[edit] The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section. The result of the proposal was moved. --BDD (talk) 17:40, 23 July 2013 (UTC) Fairfax District, Los Angeles → Fairfax, Los Angeles – To conform with all other Los Angeles neighborhoods in accordance with previous consensus. GeorgeLouis (talk) 15:41, 16 July 2013 (UTC) Support – No need to add "District". --Article editor (talk) 23:32, 16 July 2013 (UTC) The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section. Support - Yes, there is a need to add "District". This is how Fairfax is referred to by people who actually live in Los Angeles. That Angelenos don't call Chinatown, "the Chinatown District" or Little Tokyo, the "Japanese District", or some other name is irrelevant. The Fairfax District is what it is called in Los Angeles by Angelenos. The common, local name should not be listed incorrectly to satisfy someone else's sense of style or conformity. There is no rhyme or reason why Chinatown is one word and Thai Town is two, or why we Little Tokyo, not "Japantown" like San Francisco, ditto for Little Saigon and Little Armenia. Each area has gotten its name over time and it is what locals know it as and accept it as. Wikipedia does a disservice who come here looking for local knowledge.

Fairfax District name and boundaries[edit] When was a consensus reached on changing the name of the Fairfax District to just "Fairfax"? I don't see any discussion explaining why such a move was made. Whether or not other Los Angeles neighborhoods use the name "district" behind their name is irrelevant to what the traditional, accepted name of the Fairfax District has been. I can provide numerous Los Angeles sources that talk about the Fairfax District. Its name should be restored since that is how it has always been, Wikipedia should not be changing names for some sort of conformity that is unnecessary. On a similar vein, why were the boundaries of the traditional Fairfax District changed? The description of "It is roughly bordered by West Hollywood on the north, Highland Avenue on the east, West Hollywood and Beverly Hills on the west and Wilshire Boulevard on the south. The Fairfax District is sometimes confused with Park La Brea, which is a real estate development within the District, and the curious Beverly Hills Adjacent, particularly on housing rental advertisements. The section of Fairfax Avenue filled with traditionally Jewish businesses is sometimes referred to by Angelenos as Kosher Canyon or "The Bagel District." Beginning around 2005, real estate listings controversially began to define the western part of the area as Beverly Grove when listing homes for sale." was more accurate. The LA Times is listed as the sole source on this geographic change. "Beverly Grove" is not a neighborhood any long time Angeleno would recognize, especially since The Grove shopping center from whence this new "neighborhood" gets its name didn't even exist until the early 2000's and ironically is not even in its namesake neighborhood.Scottca075 (talk) 19:53, 30 October 2013 (UTC) Well the LA Times calls it just "Fairfax". But I agree with the two comments above. It is only ever called "The Fairfax District". I think there needs to be a consensus on *this* particular neighborhood as to what the most common way of calling it is, and that should be the article name.

"Fairfax District" is overwhelmingly the common name for this place[edit] Please see this list of news articles and it is clear that what local residents say above is true, the area is referred to as 'The Fairfax District' and never just as "Fairfax". So I was "bold" and moved the article back to its proper title. Keizers (talk) 04:14, 4 November 2013 (UTC)
